judgment would be george w. bush was unusual in being a better second term president than a first term president, i think reagan was worst in the second term and i think clinton worst in the second term the hope is that obama like george w. bush in this way only would learn and continue this elf lucian doris is talkable about, reflecting of things that haven't worked, and i think the strongest lesson of his learning there position is positioning the economic argument which he has done in the last six or eight months in a way that gives him some strength for the election year. >> and yet you suggest in this article that the one thing that doesn't seem to come natural to him is to speak about economic issues. to explain them, to be able to identify with people who are suffering because of contemporary economic issues. >> yes, i had really interesting to interviews with mondale and hart, mondale i talked to him after the tragic death of his the daughter eleanor and something he learned from seeing people on the iron range, and other places how devastating it was when people lost their job

can't get below that. i think maybe george w. bush at one point came close. so how do we square the historians immediately in your great category where is the voters were essentially saying he's ineligible for rehire? well, history is looking at the overall record, which is highly accessible. i would say her road trip you look at first term because he made the agonizing decision to save nearly american lines. he presided over america's role in fostering the united nations. he was the president under containment which saved western europe from soviet aggression also miss him that was poised with 1.3 million troops. he frosted the market plan, brought about the national security act of 1947 and created the defense department and other things. he successfully made it transition from the wartime economy and he made the momentous decision to read about how we made the decision and all the adviser said you can't say. you'll have to get country and give up on berlin. absolutely heroic. all that i just described happen in the first term. the second term was really quite mediocre. he did

earned 88% of the african-american vote against george w. bush. >>> still, some members of the audience gave romney credit for simply taking the time to address the convention. but that doesn't mean the audience agreed with what he was saying. >> i'm going to eliminate every nonessential expensive program i can find. that includes obama care, and i'm going to work to reform and save -- [ crowd booing ] >> romney said he anticipated a tough response from the crowd and following the speech, he told a group of donors quote, your friends who like obama care, you remind them of this -- if they want more stuff from the government, tell them to go vote for the other guy. more free stuff. but don't forget, nothing is really free. it has to be paid for by people in the private sector creating goods and services, end quote. the obama campaign said in statement at the naacp leaders in the african-american community recognize the devastating impact mitt romney's policies would have on working families. >>> a new campaign ad from the obama campaign accuses romney of supporting tax breaks for special

. he is a former speech writer for george w. bush. i would wonder whether the romney campaign wanted to be booed at the naacp. that whole line, could he maybe been aiming at his own base with that one? >> i asked the romney campaign that very question when we had a chance to talk with them. they did not respond to that question but were peppered with so many questions i think they were having trouble answering all of them. they didn't have time to answer all of them. i will say that mitt romney did get a lot of conservative props on twitter and social media for coming to this group and sticking to his principles and policy positions. he did not tailor his speech. he said he would repeal the president's signature legislative achievement, that is the health care law and tipped off a number of other iemts. and so even the leadership of the naacp that i talked to after this event were saying mitt romney showed a lot of courage in coming here today. >> speaking of props you eluded to this. this is something in which romney got a much better response. take a listen. >> any policy that lift
rove was george w. bush's brain, then david axelrod is barack obama's homer. what i mean by that is that david axelrod is a brilliant creator, personal stories of politicians. when brock barack obama ran in 2008, he did not have a record to run on. but he didn't have to run on that. what he had was his personal story. the son of a black african and white middle american mother. a man who saw his identity and found it, he was raised by his saintly grandparents and so forth. this is a homeric story, if you will. homer was known for talking about a trip, and during the trip, coming to some inner understanding of oneself. this is a story that david axelrod passion for obama to run on. the problem is, in this day and age, this is the story we have been there and done and seen and we cannot do it again. he does not have a record of success with the economy. i don't think anybody would disagree with that. he can point to certain liberal causes, such as health care, but we see that in the polls, but that is not a popular thing to run on. what he has been running on instead of dav

-frank legislation and the case being put forward by c. boyden gray, who served in the george w. bush administration. our phone lines are open. you can join the conversation on our twitter page or send us an e-mail. what is the constitutional argument that you are putting forth that this is not constitutional? guest: our argument is that there is no oversight for this huge bureaucracy. the president, once he appoints the director, will no longer have influence on what the director does, and not have a check on his or her power. the congress has no financial responsibility because the bureau is paid for by the fed, which is beyond congress control with its budget, and they can do whatever the concern all -- consumer bureau wants to do with the 18 statutes that have been handed to them, implemented by the fed or the trade commission, where several other agencies. -- or several other agencies. so, the whole world is turned upside down, and richard cordray can do anything he wants without any political check on what he does. it is unprecedented. there is no animal like this in the federal government, an
way he is addressing people who have had success. >> bill: the way i see this george w. bush had almost the same thing that people liked bush the younger, even when his policies on iraq and the economy were going south. they still separated his job performance from the man. and it seems like they are doing the same thing with barack obama. you know, he comes across as very accessible and kind of a certainly not an intimidating man. he keeps his composure almost always. so, while you are saying yeah, that his policy and his view of what american capitalism should be and i agree with that i think he made an enormous mistake saying that entrepreneurs really weren't responsible for their own success, i think that the folks are separating the policy from the guy. do you disagree. >> they always do that to the president. as you said, george bush had high ratings until the last maybe five or six weeks. and i think that's happening to the president. as he tries to walk away from what he just said, i think he is going to hurt himself even more. and you know he is saying he didn't mean wha

out in 2000 and 2004, i think george w. bush in 2000, would -- early in the campaign it seems to me, i remember him going to one inner city stop after another inner city stop and we were all scratching our heads why are they doing it, they weren't doing it to win votes in the inner city, they were doing it to win votes in the philadelphia suburbs. >> because in the philadelphia suburbs they like a compassionate conservative which mitt romney has proved he's not this campaign. >> has he proven that? >> those primaries, i -- i think did it. but on the theory that 90% of life is showing up, it was a good thing to go. a good thing he went. he had the opportunity to show the nonindependent voter that he wasn't going to go all wobbly. the people he's still going to protect are people like him. and he -- right there in the lion's den he said i'm not going to protect you. >> jon meacham, you talked about historical trends, we both talked about how this duopoly of parties that's been around for 150 years is sure to crack, for a lot of younger americans it may be hard to believe, but african-ame

this is the first time that mitt romney meets with either president george w. bush or vice president cheney. this is really sort of a passing of a baton from the former republican administration to the presumptive president nominee. that does it for mitch reports. happy birthday dad. he's 78 years young today. congratulations. my colleague craig melvin has a look on what's next. >> happy birthday from craig. counter punch. we have the latest reaction to vice president joe biden's rousing speech in texas before the naacp, one day after mitt romney took that same stage. how did vice president biden do? should president obama have spoken before the group instead? we'll talk about that plus that scathing report issued on the penn state cover-up at the highest levels of the university over the jerry sandusky scandal. and, the aclu sues a school district for violating a student's right to learn to read. should schools be sued for not properly educating students. we'll talk about that. it's our "news nation" gut check next. and focus on the things that matter to you.
